Ack Vaermeland, du skoena, du haerliga land!

by Unknown

Publication date 1904-00-00
Here we have a brown wax cylinder, issued by Dansk Fonograf Magasin Kjøbenhavn under catalogue no. #929

Unfortunately the performer is not mentioned nor announced. If anyone knows, please post it!

The title itself is a well-known traditional. As far as it was audible for me, the language is Swedish.

Due to its playback speed of 160rpm this cylinder dates likely from 1902-1906.

Lyrics:

Ack Värmeland, du sköna, du härliga land,
du kronabland svearikes länder.

Och komme jag än midt i det förlofvade land,
till Värmland jag ändå åter vänder.

Ja, där vill jag lefva, ja där vill jag dö:
Och om en gång från Värmland jag tager mig en mö,
så vet jag, att aldrig jag mig ångrar.

Ja, när du en gång skall bort och gifta dig, min vän,
då skall du till Värmeland fara.

Där finnes nog Guds gafvor af flickor kvar igen,
och all ä'de präktiga och rar.

Men friar du där, så var munter och glad,
ty raska gossar vilja Värmlandsflickorna ha,
de sorgsna dem ge de upp båten.

Very interesting - doesn't sound too shabby either, but at times (0:54 to 1:02), it sounds like feedback.

Must've been fun for you to capture digitally; thanks for posting!
